Westchester Mothers Host #26 Acts of Kindness Dinner at Benjamin Steakhouse to Commemorate the loss of Newtown families.
White Plains, NY, December 20th, 2012 – On Wednesday, December 19, 2012, Benjamin Steakhouse Westchester and Westchester Blogger StacyKnows hosted the #26 Acts of Kindness Dinner to commemorate the lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Stacy Geisinger of StacyKnows.com invited 26 Westchester Mothers to a vigil and candle lighting ceremony held at Benjamin Steakhouse. The 26 female attendees wrote down an act of kindness they were dedicated to and read them aloud during the vigil.
The dinner was inspired by Reporter Ann Curry’s social media campaign #26Acts. Ann Curry recently tweeted, “Imagine if all of us committed to 20 mitvahs/acts of kindness to honor each child lost in Newtown. I’m in. If you are RT #20Acts.”
“I wanted to bring the #26Acts Social Media Campaign to life that Ann Curry started on Twitter,” said event organizer Kris Ruby of Ruby Media Group.
“I am thankful that we could come together as women and as mothers to commemorate such a terrible loss. When I heard about Ann Curry’s social media campaign #26 Acts of Kindness, I knew this was a great opportunity to pay it forward and keep the campaign moving to help others and raise money for the victims,” said blogger Stacy Geisinger.
Benjamin Steakhouse Westchester donated 26 meals to the family members of the victims lost. All proceeds from the evening were donated to The Sandy Hook School Support Fund. $1,828 was raised in donations for The Sandy Hook School Support Fund at the dinner. The donations were presented to honorary guest Robert Merola, Legislative Council Member of Newtown, CT.
“Our sympathies go out to the victims families and the entire Newtown community,” said Benjamin Steakhouse owner Benjamin Sinanaj
